A Good Question in Minnesota

It appears that the state of Minnesota will be voting on a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage.

Despite Steve Simon's rhetorical flourishes.

If you haven't seen the video of the Democratic state representative making several good points as he speaks against the amendment, check it out here.

Simon's takeaway line was, "How many more gay people does God have to create before we ask ourselves whether or not God actually wants them around?"

I've pondered his question. I have two answers:

1. 24,835,947.
2. If God stopped making straight people, the point would get across faster.
